    Where do I begin? We loved this man. He was my nephew but also so much more. His devotion to family was unwavering. His smile and laughter did not go unnoticed.
    His love and respect for his grandparents warmed our hearts. I will miss his hugs and the visits we shared.
    His pride in his photography was enjoyed by so many friends and family. He will always hold a special place in our hearts.
